TORONTO, June 10, 2024 – Thomson Reuters (TSX/NYSE: TRI), a global content and technology company, today announced an expansion of its partnership with SAP as it integrates ONESOURCE Sales & Use Tax Compliance with SAP Document and Reporting Compliance for SAP S/4HANA. Available now, the new integration supports businesses using SAP technologies with automating and filing sales and use tax returns in the United States directly from SAP Document and Reporting Compliance via a unified user experience, helping to streamline processes, save time, and support accuracy in tax reporting to minimize risk.

This follows earlier solutions integrations, including three Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE solutions certified as SAP Endorsed Apps: ONESOURCE Determination for SAP S/4HANA and SAP ERP (US/CA), ONESOURCE Determination (US) for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition, and ONESOURCE Tax Provision for SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
